About

It's 4:20 somewhere...so let's play MARIJUANA MOGUL!

MARIJUANA MOGUL is a fast-paced competitive card game in which 2-6 adults (over the age of 21) attempt to build a successful dispensary by cornering the market on the most popular marijuana strains and cannabis-related products. Along the way they'll have to contend with shady politicians, the munchies, weed-destroying fungi...and each other's devious schemes, of course!

MARIJUANA MOGUL isn't just another thrown-together game with a pasted-on marijuana theme. It features quick and compelling gameplay designed for us by C. Michael Hall (creator of Pickle Pickle Pepper, Urban Knights, Fear Response, and Vampsylvania, a 2016 Hasbro Game Lab Challenge semifinalist), incorporating elements of drafting, blind-bidding, and hand-management. Even if you're not into cannabis culture, MARIJUANA MOGUL is a fun, fast gaming experience that will amuse and engage your entire gaming group! 

We've kept this campaign as simple as can be: since the game is already finished, we only need to raise enough to physically publish the game. Check out our reward levels and read our FAQ, and get ready to become the first MARIJUANA MOGUL!

DISCLAIMER: This game depicts a setting in which state-regulated production, sales, distribution, possession, and consumption of cannabis products is legal for eligible adults. The makers of this game do not encourage illegal activity of any kind. All characters depicted herein are adults over the age of 21. 

GAMEPLAY

In fancy mechanical terms, MARIJUANA MOGUL combines blind bidding with set collection and some hand management to create a competitive gaming experience that's intuitive and easy to learn, but surprisingly engrossing. Since players are often oblivious to one another's plans, each player must base their strategy on other players' behaviors. Is Doug going after the same Product card you are because he's trying to build the same set you are, or is he merely trying to keep you from pulling ahead?

Let's check in with our buddy Dank Doug for a summary of the basic gameplay...

 

 

 

 

The game consists of 126 cards (plus an exclusive card produced solely for this Kickstarter!) and instructions in a convenient tuck box. How many cards is that? It's a stack just shy of 2" tall, that's how many! What a bargain!

REWARDS

We've kept the rewards nice and simple for this campaign. Check 'em out...

Tip Jar ($1 or more): Hey, every little bit helps! Want to support the game and get your name on our website? Here's how you can do it on the cheap!

Print and Play ($10):  Prefer to print your own games at home? Are you a gamer outside the U.S. bummed out that we can't offer international shipping? Choose this option to get in on the fun at a bargain price! You'll also get your name listed on the "Backers" page of our website along with all the other cool people.

One physical copy ($25): Pledge this reward level to get a physical copy of MARIJUANA MOGUL shipped directly to you by magical cannabis elves! OK, OK...there are no magical cannabis elves involved. But we WILL ship you a copy of the game! (You can just pretend we're magical cannabis elves. We do it all the time.)

No international shipping option?

'Fraid not, peeps. Recent increases in international postage rates have pushed shipping prices so high that we can't in good conscience ask you to pay them. Couple that with the fact that the laws governing the distribution of pro-cannabis "propaganda" vary so much from country-to-country that we might run into legal issues if we did ship internationally, and you've got a recipe for a "U.S.-shipping only" Kickstarter campaign. Sorry, rest of the world. You'll just have to be content with the print and play option!

 

Risks and challenges

This is our first game, but we hired an experienced designer, illustrator, and publisher to produce it for us! The game is already 100% complete and ready to go to the printer; the only risks at this point are any production issues that might arise, and we're using an established print service to ensure we'll be taken care of if something comes up. We've minimized our risk so you can pledge with confidence!
